FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

GOD wants you to answer this question, “Are you allowing that woman Jezebel to spew out her false doctrine to HIS servants?” The church JESUS is talking to in this passage is the church in Thyatira (Revelation 2:18-25). Do you realize that if you are fearful (of that cult) and unbelieving (GOD’S WORD), you will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire and brimstone? (Revelation 21:8).
There is a blessing for reading the Book of Revelation. “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” (Revelation 1:3).
The Apostle Paul said, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the LORD, the righteous JUDGE, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love HIS appearing” (2 Timothy 4:7-8). Paul said, “Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample” (Philippians 3:17).1
JESUS says we are to be zealous about HIS work, or HE will spew us out of HIS mouth, HIS body, for being lukewarm in doing HIS work.2 HE says, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of MY mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16). “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent” (Revelation 3:19). In other words: fight the evil, preach the WORD, and always pray!3
The devil has declared war against GOD, you, me, and all saints of GOD! (Revelation 12:17).4 Get busy! “Preach the WORD”! (2 Timothy 4:2). “Pray always” (Luke 21:36). Give no place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27), but “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”! (James 4:7). “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”! (1 Peter 5:8). We are in a war. When you are in a war, you must fight!
Our weapons of warfare are not carnal, but SPIRITUAL. We don’t war with guns, bullets, or bombs, but with the WORD of GOD.5 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of GOD, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of CHRIST” (2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
GOD told the prophet Jeremiah when he was but a young boy, “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out [the evil], and to pull down, and to destroy [all false doctrine], and to throw down [all lies], to build [the house of GOD], and to plant [the WORD of GOD and churches everywhere]” (Jeremiah 1:10). Do not worry about not being politically correct, because it is not correct to be political at all—it is satanic. It is Satan’s way of taking away your eternity in Heaven and our freedom of religion here on earth, the U.S. Constitution, and our freedom of speech here on earth. Our forefathers fled Europe to get away from these people, the despots, and to get rid of the Catholic cult tyranny of the pope in Rome. Just as the KJV Bible tells us this would happen worldwide at the end of time, it is happening at this very moment. Resist this demonic movement now or be found guilty by association.
The devil is trying to make everyone afraid to serve GOD and afraid to fight the devil. But don’t forget: those who are fearful of the devil and unbelieving shall be tormented forever in the Lake of Fire! (Revelation 21:8). GOD said this, and it is impossible for GOD to lie!6 JESUS is the truth; HE is the WORD of GOD.7
If you don’t get busy for HIM, it is the same as implying that GOD is a liar! “Let GOD be true, but every man a liar” (Romans 3:4). GOD is the GOD of the impossible. “With GOD all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
In Israel, everyone of age becomes a soldier for a time, and they are trained to use carnal weapons when they are under attack. All Christians are called into the war, which for us is SPIRITUAL. Again, our weapon is the WORD of GOD, which is the double-edged sword.8 This is the most powerful weapon in the universe that we must choose to use. The more of the WORD of GOD we know, the more equipped we are to fight.9
We must fight because, whether we like it or not, the devil is attacking us. The devil hates the WORD of GOD, and he hates every one of us who is saved, preaching, doing the work of GOD, and teaching from GOD’S King James Version Bible (which is the best English translation). The old KJV Bible says the dictates of all religions are wrong,10 that only JESUS is “the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the FATHER, but by [JESUS]” (John 14:6). “Then said JESUS unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All [saviors] that ever came before ME are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them” (John 10:7-8).
In Heaven, before JESUS was begotten by the HOLY SPIRIT, HIS name was and still is the WORD of GOD (Revelation 19:11-13). When John 3:16 says, believe on the name of JESUS and you will be saved, it means believe on and in the whole WORD of GOD, and you shall be saved.
Pray without ceasing. Pray in the name of JESUS111 that GOD will fight for us and for the souls of the world and even for the souls of our enemies, because Hell and the Lake of Fire are forever! This is how we fight the good fight! Pray in faith in the name of JESUS to GOD for all born-again Christians, for their deliverance from all evil, for their healing, for mercy, for their finances, for their loved ones, their SPIRITUAL growth and strength in the LORD, and their boldness in the SPIRIT to approach the throne of power. Pray also for those of us in prison, and for the unsaved, who shall be saved in the name of JESUS, if they repent.
Repent of your sinfulness now and start your new life in Christ by saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Then study the King James Version Bible, and, for your benefit and the benefit of others, do what it says.13
CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT.14 For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
